Where can you read a book with paranormal characters suffering from chronic obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety issues, hoarding issues, and panic attacks? Well, right here in a Shawntelle Madison novel of course! Not to mention you've got a sweet as sugar wizard named Nick who's just as nutty as the protagonist Natalya, and he's got a water sprite who plays in his toilet! Throw in a soulful eyed, moody Thorn, the love of Natalya's life that left without a word five years ago, and you've got the remaining bones for a terrific love triangle that started in the first book of this series, Coveted.

What makes the sequel Kept just as good as the first book? Quite a few things actually. You'll once again find a great plot line to the book, with a fantastic support group case of secondary characters. You've still got the bitchy barbie werewolf who's just itching to get her matrimonial claws into Thorn's hide, and rule with him as the alpha couple of their pack. Instead of having to save her brother, like Natalya had to do in Coveted, well this time she's got to save her father. Natalya is also still fighting to not just get her place in the pack back, but also a place in her family. Not to mention that all-seeing-eye of a doctor of hers always seems to know when she's about to break down and buy one of her feel good Christmas ornaments in a moment of relapse. So this book still has Natalya going on assignments to actively battle her compulsive buying and hoarding quirks. Madison once again writes a highly amusing book that will have you in turns shaking your head, itching to slap someone, or poking out your lip in commiseration with Natalya's ups and downs. Not to mention that readers will finally get that answer about who Natalya will end up with: Nick or Thorn. And I'm not spilling it girls, so you'll just have to read it to find out! Great follow up to the first book, and a solid four wine glass toast!
